Video+Story: TNTM Talks Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies

Marvel used their movies to build up to the big confrontation in Avengers Infinity War. They teased Thanos here and there throughout their other movies so that when he made his big appearance in Infinity War, most people already knew all about him and what a big threat he is.

We are hoping that Marvel starts building up to another of their epic stories after the Thanos situation is resolved in Avengers Infinity War part 2. They have plenty of great line wide story arcs that would translate nicely to the big screen.

Another thing we are hoping for is to start seeing more crossover between the movies and TV shows. Cross your fingers!

Video+Story – TNTM: Marvel Cosmic Ghost Rider series

Marvel introduced a new character in Thanos #16, the Cosmic Ghost Rider. It is revealed later in that issue that the Cosmic Ghost Rider is none other than… Frank Castle (Punisher). If that isn’t twisted enough for you, the story of how he became the right hand of Thanos is very warped.

Thanos came to Earth and is in the midst of easily defeating all the heroes. During this battle, Frank thinks “I would give anything to punish that purple sonofabitch.” The old saying “Be careful what you wish for” applies here as Mephisto heard this thought.

Mephisto makes Frank his newest Ghost Rider Spirit of Vengeance. There is one small problem though. Thanos left no survivors. There is no one to punish or even talk to. Cosmic Ghost Rider is left with his own thoughts causing him to lose a bit of his sanity.

After a millennia passes, Galactus appears on Earth in rough shape and on the run from Thanos. Since Cosmic Ghost Rider wants revenge on Thanos himself, he agrees to become a herald of Galactus. He is granted the power cosmic from Galactus.

The pair hunt down Thanos only to have him behead Galactus and easily defeat Cosmic Ghost Rider. Thanos sees something in Cosmic Ghost Rider and offers for him to be his right hand man. Cosmic Ghost Rider will be able to punish countless people across the cosmos.

Cosmic Ghost Rider is such a popular character he is getting his own mini-series (5 issues) with the first one hitting shelves July 4, 2018. The series will be written by Donny Cates with interior art by Dylan Burnett and cover art by Geoff Shaw. This series promises to be very interesting.

What do you think about Cosmic Ghost Rider? Let us know in the comments.

Video – TNTM: Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War Movie Review

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War is the movie MCU has been building up to ever since the first Iron Man movie. They pulled in so many characters and each one received their fair share of screen time. They did all this while staying true to each character’s persona.

Marvel didn’t skimp out on extra characters like they did in Civil War. They brought in nearly all their heavy hitters for this epic battle against Thanos. The CGI was very good and did not distract from the movie. Watching Thanos systematically collect all the Infinity Stones for the Gauntlet was compelling. I don’t remember any lull in the movie. The action sequences were very captivating. I can’t find any fault with the movie.

If you’re a big comic book fan you’ll notice some deviations from the source material, but they are explained very well. The end result is the same, the movie just takes a slightly different route to get there.

There are multiple superhero deaths in Infinity War. You might want to bring some Kleenex cuz there are some tear-inducing moments. You will want to stay through the end credits because this IS a Marvel movie and you know there will be a clip at the end.

Just like all Marvel end credit scenes, you get a hint at the next upcoming Marvel movie.

We loved Avengers: Infinity War. Everyone that gave us their review also gave it overwhelmingly positive reviews. You will want to go watch this movie on opening weekend BEFORE someone spoils the big scenes for you.

Video – TNTM: Marvel Entertainment Avengers: Infinity War discussion

If you’ve been paying attention at all during all the Marvel movies you should have noticed they keep centering around these things called Infinity Stones. They have been called different things in the comics (Infinity Gems, Soul Gems). The different stones are even different colors in the movies than they are in the comics. The one thing that is the same is the power they hold.

Each Gem is powerful in it’s own right. When you put all six together on the Infinity Gauntlet the wearer is probably the single strongest entity in the Marvel Universe. Since we are talking about the movie let’s focus on the cinematic Infinity Stones.

Space Stone (Blue): This stone is in the Tesseract. It allows the owner to travel through space.

Mind Stone (Yellow): This one is in Loki’s scepter. It is what allowed Loki to take control of Hawkeye’s mind.

Reality Stone (Red): is the Aether from Thor Dark World. It is capable of turning anything into dark matter or sucking the life force out of mortals.

Power Stone (Purple): The orb from Guardians of the Galaxy contains the Power Stone. It is capable of destroying entire civilizations with just a touch.

Time Stone (Green): The Eye of Agamotto has the Time Stone inside. It allowed Doctor Strange to manipulate time and eventually defeat Dormammu.

Soul Stone (Orange): We haven’t been introduced to this stone yet. There is speculation that it is Heimdall’s eyes. We will just have to wait and see.

They have promised to have a lot more characters in Avengers: Infinity War. This is a world shattering battle affecting every living superhero. It would feel a bit anemic without a lot of characters (cough.. Civil War.. cough).

If you haven’t read the story, there is still time to get a copy of the Infinity Gauntlet. The comic should help fill in a lot of the backstory they won’t be able to cover in the movie. If the movie is as good as the comics, Marvel will have another hit on their hands.

TNTM: What are Marvel Comics Infinity Gems?

If you’ve been watching the Marvel Comics movies (judging by the box office numbers I would say that is most of you) then you noticed there is an underlying theme of different colored “things” with various powers. You will also notice Thanos tends to keep appearing. There is a reason for that.

Infinity or Soul Gems

In the comics there are six different gems each with their own special power. They were originally called Soul Gems, but were later renamed Infinity Gems. They are the Mind Gem, Time Gem, Reality Gem, Soul Gem, Power Gem, and Space Gem. Individually these gems are quite powerful. What Thanos figured out is that when they are all controlled by one person they are unstoppable.

The origin of the Infinity Gems is they were actually once part of the primordial entity, Nemesis. Many eons ago, Nemesis ended its existence rather than live as the only sentience in the universe. Nemesis shattered into pieces forming the six Infinity Gems.

Thanos and the Infinity Gems

(In the comics) Thanos was born on Saturn’s moon Titan. He is the child of Eternals Mentor and Sui-San. Thanos carries the Deviants gene which causes the physical appearance of the Eternals cousin race. His mother attempted to kill him at birth.

During his school years, Thanos was a pacifist and would only play with his brother Eros (Starfox) and pets. Growing up he became fascinated with nihilism and death. He worshiped and eventually fell in love with the physical embodiment of death, Mistress Death.

Thanos places all six Infinity Gems on his left glove to form the Infinity Gauntlet. Each Gem grants mastery over an aspect of the multiverse: Time, Space, Mind, Soul, Reality, and Power. When all six gems are combined on the Infinity Gauntlet it provides Omnipresence, Omniscience, and Omnipotence.

Thanos is desperate to win the love of Death. He offers her a token of his affection by completing a task she had given him. He promises to erase half the life in the universe.

The superheroes on Earth that were not killed band together to stop Thanos. To impress Death, Thanos allows the heroes a slight chance of winning. He easily defeats and kills nearly all of them.

Thanos also defeats and imprisons many of the universe’s cosmic entities including Galactus, the Stranger, the Titan Kronos, Epoch, Love and Hate, Master Order and Lord Chaos, and Eternity. The only entities with power greater than the Infinity Gauntlet are the Living Tribunal and the One-Above-All. After defeating Eternity, Thanos leaves his body and becomes the living embodiment of the universe. This leaves his abandoned body vulnerable to Nebula, his alleged granddaughter.

Nebula takes the Gauntlet off Thanos’ hand and wears it herself. She is able to undo all of Thanos’ actions. This restores her from disfigurement, brings the dead back to life, and reverses the damage done to the cosmos.

Another battle with the heroes and cosmic deities ends with Adam Warlock taking possession of the Gauntlet. Thanos appears to commit suicide. Warlock’s allies object when he plans to keep the gauntlet intact for himself, but he ignores them. Later it is discovered Thanos is working on a farm while contemplating his loss. Satisfied that he is no longer a threat, decide to leave him be.

Other Infinity Gem Collectors

Others have collected all the gems together for various reasons. The Elder wanted to use them to rid the universe of Galactus, The Man Beast used them to form the Infinity Thrall, and Loki was able to combine them with a sevent gem (Ego Gem). Even Galactus and the Grandmaster have gathered them all together. Several how tried to obtain all six gems such as Magus and Count Abyss.
